Description:

African Harrier-Hawk hunting in palm tree in Windhoek.

Summary / Notes:

The African Harrier-Hawk or Gymnogene Polyboroides typus is a rare species in Namibia south of Etosha National Park. Over the past 28 years living in Windhoek I have had only three sightings in the Windhoek district. On 31 March 2011 at about 09h00 a subadult African Harrier-Hawk flew into the top of our neighbour's old, very tall Washingtonia palm tree in Windhoek West (notice small patch of brown plumage on neck in photo below). This tree provides roosting and breeding sites for Bradfield's Swifts, Palm Swifts, Red-headed Finches and House Sparrows.
